I always say the accent at the end. It's originally a woggy word so pronounce it that way. If you want to discuss a chicken house then say coop.
As for Porsche, I usually leave the 'a' off the end, but sometimes I say it. Mainly if those around me say it as well.

Got another one for all of you who live in Melbourne... A suburb in northern melbourne, reservoir, do you pronounce it ending in a or sound or voir sound? Having lived there for years, I know how all the locals pronounce it, but I'm curious to see how everyone else pronounces it.
